What sunscreen should I use on my children?

Protecting your baby from UVA and UVB is important because a baby’s skin can burn easily because it’s thin and far more sensitive. (1)

 

If your baby is less than 6 months old, we recommend that you avoid sun exposure as your infants’ skin is particularly delicate.

 

For children older than 6 months, it is important to liberally use sunscreen and avoid exposure to the sun in the peak hours, use protective clothing, a hat with a brim and sunglasses. Ensure you reapply every 2 hours to maintain protection throughout the day.

 

SunSense™ Kids has been specially developed for the delicate skin of children aged 6 months and above, with SunSense™ Sensitive recommended for those with extremely sensitive skin, and for babies.
